Since leaving the Armed Forces, Roch has recovered sufficiently to regain a modicum of mobility but continues to also deal with the psychological effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Roch received a specialised hand-bike, thanks to a welfare grant from the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund, to enable him to enjoy the great outdoors with his family was well as enjoy the benefits of exercise.
